The Disciples are some of the harder summits to reach in the area. The grades are moderate, but they're a bit stiff compared to other towers around the Monument and are a serious undertaking considering the long approach, loose rock, and lack of quality protection at times. To keep the adventure alive and well on these, I'll be brief on the details, but I wanted to point out a few things that'll help the next party along and recognize Bill Forrest and Steve French, these are stout lines!

For the First Disciple, begin on the west side at the notch between the 1st and 2nd Disciple. The line will become obvious as you move up from there. It is 3 pitches to the top. The second pitch requires heads up nailing and has potential for a bad ledge fall.

Bring a healthy amount of webbing or an old rope to leave as an anchor. he anchor at the top can be either a juniper or some blocks. We opted for the blocks, the first ascent did the juniper. Do two double rope rappels to get down.


It is in the back of Devils's Canyon above the cabin. Devil's Disciple I is the closest one to the cabin.


Two sets from small to fists with one or two bigger pieces. Use mostly peckers on the aid pitch with a few Lost Arrows and baby angles.
